martha2Another recommendation for Kopaka Wedding Cake.  One of my best friend –  Martha& Dicky also chose Kopaka for their wedding cake.

They held the wedding in the grand ballroom of Hotel Papandayan;  which can accomodate more than 1000peeps.  They spent  1,5mio IDR for the wedding cake (dummy cake only) .

*Price include real cake for cake cutting ceremony (suap-suapan), 1 complimentary real cake (diameter 10cm) for bride and groom, decorated knife, cake table, table linen, and on-duty cake officer

It was a 3-Layer dummy wedding cake, with a big white icing flower topper, and icing flower in-between each layers. The topping and icing flowers enhance the height of the cake and make it looks bigger and taller.

I love the color and simple decoration of the cake.


Tips : To get a good deal, Martha cut out all the complimentary real cake (which usually given to families at the end of ceremony) to only 1 cake (only for B&G) — I think this is a good tips for all bride-to-be.

cakeMy  choice goes to Kopaka Cake (– recommended by my brother)

Main office is in Bandung, but they do have showroom at Kelapa Gading. They are  famous for the “Layer Cake”, so make sure you put this on your selection.

They have no problem on producing all-real wedding cake, but design will be very limited.  You can’t use too many icing as the weight will damage the cake (kuenya mejret nanti :p)

Here’s a peek on my wedding cake, a 2 Layer wedding cake (all real cake) covered by white chocolate — tied with pink ribbon, fresh rose flower as cake topper and red grapes as decoration.

Dealt directly on one of wed exhibition with Ko Khiau Sen at a price of IDR4,5mio. (April 2008)

Actually a bit disappointed to see such small cake for that price, no one noticed that I have a wedding cake on that day. Well, note this : if you wed at Mulia Ballroom (or any hotel ballroom  that can hold 3000 peeps),  do pick a minimum of 5-Layer cake! Should have followed the advice from Ko Khiau Sen 🙂  (I thought he was just doing some marketing stuff that time…)

Since I got good feedback from families (cake is yummy), I am quite happy with my choice.

PS: If you want a matching wedding cake with your room decoration, usually you can deal with the decorator to spare some flowers for your wedding cake.

They are quite new in this industry, so the cake design are still very basic (don’t compare with other specialized wedding cake vendor). If you are looking for enhanced design, I would not recommend them.

Note that price are for cakes only, it does not include cake table, table linen, decorated knife, and person-on-duty on wedding day — which is something you really have to consider…do you really bother to cut  cakes for families on your wedding day ????


My favorite  is, whether it’s dummy/real, all cakes are fully yours…Bring it home, You can keep your wedding cake as your keep-sake 🙂



le Novelle Cakes

I am going to start with one of wedding cake vendor in Jakarta — le Nouvelle Cakes.

The best time to pick wedding cake vendors is during wedding exhibition, where they usually show their latest dummy wedding cake and provide complimentary cake tasting 🙂

If you visit May May or Bazzar wedding exhibition, most likely you will find le Novelle Cake. The owner is Ci Susan – a very friendly auntie, on exhibition usually she is accompanied by her daughter. Both are good looking and very friendly 🙂

Their specialties are on dummy cakes, their design are American and Australian style.

I do like their design, but I was looking for real cake not dummy and from our conversation they are more confident to deliver dummy cakes.

Wedding References ??

It’s not until I browse through my data in my hard drive — to realize that I have many wedding vendor references that is worth to share for the bride&groom-to-be.

Name it —  hotel wedding packages, cakes, MC & Entertainment, video and photography — I have it all 🙂

When I was browsing for reference (for my wedding), I hardly find blogs or recommendation that includes pricing as part of the information. Well, why not post it now :p

Hope that I have enough energy to post it all, since blogging was never on my top listing…but let’s see how it goes…

Enjoy everyone…

Vows are exchanged

Unity candles are lit

Champagne are poured

Bouqets are tossed

Wedding day are over…165 day ago

That moment — moment I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Still remember the exciting wedding preparations;
sleepless night thinking of the party theme, venue hunting,long hours wedding exhibition exploration, countless goggle hit finding flower and stationary samples,flipping wedding magazines, wedding gown monthly fitting,vendors and proposals reviews, invitation and stationary layout revisions, favors hunting,wedding cake tasting, booklets printings, guest listing, song listing, sitting arrangement, ceremony procession planning,and the list goes on….

Tiring, but I definitely miss that moment 🙂
The moment I plan for my our very own wedding day ..

469 day ago, he proposed me.
243 day afterwards, he made me his wife.
But in that 243 days —  I found the world I turned to like most — the “World of Weddings”

Surrounded by beautiful things such as flowers, papers, lace, crystals, stunning gown and diamonds 🙂
Love is in the air, even flowers and papers smell like love.
Jazzy romantic tunes are all over your head,  I  love    love     love    weddings!

Thank you for bringing the world into life and let me live it.

Dedicated to Jul, the hubby
